The information card typically just gives a URL for finding out more information about the items in the box. The picture is adorable, although those calicos are far too happy (my calico, Sneaky is usually hangry).

Katmint Kauai Blend Catnip (0.5 oz?) – Value $3.99

Score! This is catnip (which all my cats love) mixed with valerian (a Money favorite) and silvervine (a Madison favorite). I have to be careful where I put this because I already managed to start a kitty hissing match over a scratch pad I refreshed with this.

Hoptuits Cricket Crunchies (25 g) – Value $2.87

These are from a Canadian company so I’ve linked to the Canadian website and converted the value to US dollars. These are small, crunchy treats that include cricket protein and a bit of egg, as well as a few other ingredients. Most of my cats actually did not care for these, but I let Mr. Kitty have a few (he’s done OK with egg before, and he’s never had cricket). He was so excited to get treats, you have no idea. I am sure he remembers liking treats, even though he has had IBD for five years. These were a bit hard for him with his bad teeth, but he made it work, plus it’s been a few hours and he’s kept them (and his lunch) down.

Aloha Flower Crinklers Toy 2 Pack – Value $5.99

The feather came out of one of these, but the cats liked them anyway. Monkey and Madison, in particular, were fond of these. Both of them rolled all over these on the floor (some of which I managed to capture for you below). They are simple catnip plushes and just the right size for my crew.

Meow Meow’s Shave Ice Toy – Value $5.99

This was another big hit with Angus. It’s a pretty simple toy, just a catnip plush (small-to-medium sized). Angus really tried to tear this apart and wasn’t able to, so I guess it’s pretty well-made.

Tropical Chasers Coconut and Pineapple Toy 2 Pack – Value $5.99

Although Angus liked all the toys from this box, I think these were his favorite. They are both little rattles and they also have catnip inside, plus lots of interesting textures. They are small and lightweight and Angus tossed them everywhere. Madison was interested, too.

Angus sniffs a treat.

You GET that pineapple!

Angus momentarily forgets he has a toy and plays with his own foot.

Monkey also rolled on a flower toy. These were popular.

After trying the treats, Sneaky decided she was in a bad mood.

This is not a great picture, and I know it, but it is Mr. Kitty EATING A TREAT. He almost never gets to do that. He was so happy.

Verdict: I calculated a value of $24.83 for the August Meowbox. That is a little bit above the cost of the box on a month-to-month basis, which is pretty good for a cat subscription box. More importantly, every single thing in the box was loved by at least one of my cats, even Mr. Kitty!

What did you think of the August 2017 Meowbox? Do you subscribe to any cat boxes?

  1. So glad to see that Mr. Kitty enjoyed the treats! I’ll mention to my mom the hardness – see if we can’t get a new recipe tested. If you have any other feedback, don’t hesitate to give us a shout!

    • In fairness, Mr. Kitty has really bad teeth. I have to puree wet food with water to feed him and he drinks it instead of chews. We can’t do a dental appointment and extractions because he is on pretty strong immunosuppressant medications for his inflammatory bowel disease. I think most cats wouldn’t have trouble with the texture.

  2. Finally! Every time I read this review I wondered if Angus was ever going to be included on the box.

  3. I love seeing your cats! Mr. Kitty having a treat warms my heart. Plus the info card on this was adorable!!

  4. It warms my heart just reading about how happy Mr. Kitty was to get a treat.

  5. Hey Madison got out from under the bed!! (I follow your cats waayyy too much lol)

    • I dragged him from under the bed into the bathroom and shut the door so he couldn’t escape…
